Judge Gives Partial Victory to Fired Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran

A judge has ruled that an Atlanta city policy that led to the firing of former Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran in 2015, for distributing a book to coworkers that said homosexuality was sinful, is unconstitutional.

U.S. District Court Judge Leith Martin May issued the ruling Wednesday labeling Atlanta’s policy that says public employees must get permission to do other work was unconstitutional.

“This policy would prevent an employee from writing and selling a book on golf or badminton on his own time and, without prior approval, would subject him to firing. It is unclear to the Court how such an outside employment would ever affect the city’s ability to function, and the city provides no evidence to justify it,” May said.
